New feed barges from AKVA group
AKVA group has just delivered the first of several new feed barges for the Sea Bass and Sea Bream industry in the Mediterranean, reports www.megafishnet.com with reference to AKVA Group.
The brand new Wavemaster AJ-150-MED is custom designed to meet specific market requirements for this region, both in terms of size, features and price. The first barge was delivered to Suersan, a major player in the Turkish fishing, feed and aquaculture industry.
"We have supplied feeding technology throughout the Mediterranean for over 20 years now, and the timing was now right to customize our barge technology for this market as well", says AKVA group's Chief Marketing Officer, Trond Severinsen. "Our new compact AJ-150-MED feed barge design incorporates AKVA group's high safety, quality and design standards, while at the same time being very competitively priced in order to compete well against locally made barges in this market. We are currently building feed barges at three different shipyards in the Mediterranean and two in the Baltics. It is quite encouraging to see that other fish farming industries are adopting the same technology and scale of economics that have made the salmon farming industry so successful", he concludes.
